Dear Naresh, I just want to give you a quick update! A week from today, Ellen Gustafson and I will launch Food Tank: The Food
Think Tank
. We are both excited (and a little nervous!).  There’s no doubt that the food system is broken. More than 1 billion people are overweight or obese, nearly 1 billion people go to bed hungry every night, and at least 2 billion people suffer from micronutrient deficiencies.  We can find ways to solve these problems, though. Solutions are out there--in fields, in kitchens, and in board rooms all over the world. And you are a big part of those solutions.  If we start now, there is an opportunity to develop a better vision for the global food system. We need to change the conversation and find ways to make food production—and consumption—more economically, environmentally, and socially just and sustainable. Food Tank's goal is to be a clearing house and community to inform, share, and scale up innovations that are helping alleviate hunger and …

Naresh –The President reached an agreement with Republicans and Democrats in Congress on the “fiscal cliff” that prevents a tax hike on 98 percent of Americans and 97 percent of small businesses, while fulfilling the President’s promise to ask the wealthiest Americans to begin to pay their fair share to reduce the deficit. President Obama recorded a video to update supporters like you on what’s in the agreement and what it means for you — watch it and share it with friends and family: It’s thanks to people like you who spoke up and contacted your members of Congress throughout this debate that we were able to avoid a crippling tax hike.
As we address our ongoing fiscal challenges, the President will do exactly what he said he would on the campaign trail — working for the middle c…
